  Coupons for Our Troops
  - This is an ongoing mission/outreach project for Faith. Just bring the manufacturer coupon books from the newspaper
  to church and put them in the orange basket in the parlor. They will be sent to commissaries for out troops.
  Manufacturers will honor coupons up to six months past the expiration date. You can cut them out or bring the full
